4 online workshops to build your confidence in applying a Holistic Learning approach
Building Confidence for Holistic Learning
Date and time tbc
A wealth of evidence from neuroscience and behavioural psychology shows that a Holistic Learning approach which engages the body, mind, heart and spirit of learners is the best way to generate meaningful, effective learning experiences for participants.
However, many trainers/facilitators shrink back from adopting a more holistic approach due to concerns about how this will be received (whether by learners or by commissioners and purchasers of training), or because they worry about their own skills and ability to make it work.
In this workshop, we’ll...
Explore what might prevent us from taking a more holistic approach when designing and delivering training
Share experiences and identify practical solutions to help you to be more bold and confident about applying a Holistic Learning approach
Perceptions of Leadership
Friday 1st July 11am-12.30pm on Zoom
Despite overwhelming evidence to show that compassionate, collaborative leaders who empower others are more effective in their leadership roles, most people think that good leaders have to be heroic, masculine, and powerful.
This is why so many damaging leaders get into positions of power, and why some of the very best leaders have limited impact in their workplaces/communities/the wider world. A fundamental shift of understanding is needed among "followers" about what constitutes good leadership if things are to change.
In this workshop we'll...
Look at the research into perceptions of leadership and its implications
Explore how we, as leaders or leadership development professionals, can help to shift perceptions of what good leadership is
Identify how we can help generate a world of compassionate, humble, feminine, regenerative leadership
Balancing Masculine and Feminine Leadership
Friday 9th September 11am-12.30pm on Zoom
Regardless of our gender, it’s essential to bring our masculine (Yang) and feminine (Yin) into harmony if we are to create a world where the focus is on compassion, justice and sustainability for people and planet rather than consumption and profit.
We all need to challenge traditional leadership narratives based on masculine principles (such as strength, confidence, power, and authority) and embrace feminine leadership principles (such as connection, listening, empowerment, support, collaboration, and humility.)
In this workshop we’ll...
Explore the masculine/feminine distinction and how this differs from gender
Consider how, whatever our gender, we can create balance and harmony between our masculine and feminine leadership energies
Identify and understand when, where and why these different leadership energies can either help us or hinder us as leaders
The Role of Reconnection in Leadership
Friday 28th October 11am-12.30pm on Zoom
Over the centuries, a number of disconnections have taken place which have had a deeply damaging effect on people and planet and reconnecting these is essential if we are to create a positive difference in the future.
These disconnections include the separation of humans from nature, the separation of the masculine and feminine, the separation of mind and body, and the separation of our inner and outer worlds. These have all had an impact on individuals and societies as well as on leadership.
In this workshop we’ll...
Explore what these disconnections are, how they happened, and what their impact has been
Consider how these disconnections relate to leadership and how we can redress the balance
Identify what we can do as leaders or leadership development professionals to promote reconnection within our own areas of work
